Dhading cut off after flood

Himalayan News Service

Dhading, May 22:

Transport service in the northern parts of the Dhading district has come to a halt after a flood, triggered by three days of incessant rain, swept away a wooden bridge over the Aankhu River. Locals had constructed the bridge some four years back. The incessant downpour has affected the people of Jyamrung and other villages across the Aankhu river.

For the people already affected by a 10-day-long Maoist-imposed sanctions, the halt in transportation has caused more troubles.

Local markets are running short of goods. As all the buses have returned to the district headquarters, passengers are compelled to embark on tiresome journeys to reach their destinations.
